*This Dr. Was rude, condescending, showed no care or concern. Referred me to a Physical therapist without explanation. I asked him if he read my MRI AND HE RESPONDED THAT HE DIDNT BELIEVE IN THAT MEss This report said I have disc Herniation, bulging disc and osteoarthritis. I told him I have severe sciata nerve pain that radiated down my leg and that pain was shutting and stabbing pain. Also burning pain and numbness in my legs and feet. He acted like he had no listening skills or that he just did not care. I wouldn't refer my dog to him. He was a great disappointed. .

Dr. Koeleveld is absolutely the best. He removed my brain tumor about 20 years ago and about 5 years ago fixed my husbands herniated disc. He is very thorough and takes the time to explain everything. We were both very very satisfied with our results. Highly recommend Dr. Koeleveld!

Dr. Koeleveld sets the bar HIGH! He is literally the best! Wonderful bedside manner, wonderful care! He came in when my situation was pretty bad; he reassured me, developed and stuck to the plan, answered all of our uneducated questions and quickly became one of my most favorite people! I have a warm spot in my heart for him and not simply because he saved my life! My favorite and best neurosurgeon! You can't go wrong with him!

Dr Koeleveld operated on me this morning to remove a mass wrapped around my lower spinal cord. Without this operation I would be eventually paralyzed and incontinent. He was all smiles after operation. He’s the best, just a patch over my incision - no drain tube. He came recommended to me by a physical therapist who treated many of his patients. They all said they had no infection and were 100% happy with Dr Koeleveld. He is the best decision I’ve ever made!!!!!!

Both my wife and I are patients of Dr. Koeleveld (back and carpal tunnel) and, simply put, he is the best...all neurosurgeons are good but none are better than Dr. Koeleveld.

Gary in Pinehurst – Jul 07, 2017
Dr. Koeleveld is a brilliant and gifted surgeon. I felt 100% confident in his care and would highly recommend him to anyone in need of spinal surgery. I was diagnosed with a bilateral pars defect and spondylolisthesis in May 2016 at the age of 45. I'm now 18 weeks post laminectomy, foraminotomies, decompression and L5-S1 fusion and am extremely pleased with the results. He is compassionate, yet straight-forward and conservative in his approach - and he is always smiling.

Dr Koeleveld walks into the room with a smile, and is super friendly! Takes the time to discuss your situation and come up with a plan. He performed my L5/S1 discectomy and I felt relief right away in the recovery room- he's awesome and so is his staff! 5 stars all the way!
